- I offer a safe and confidential space where you can find understanding and support. Whatever you bring, anxiety, sadness, relationship issues, depression, trauma or overwhelm from life's struggles, I will be alongside you with empathy and compassion.
- I will listen to you and be there for you on your unique journey. I understand how difficult it can be to take this first step and I will support you to find your way at your own pace.
- I will help you to challenge with compassion and kindness limiting beliefs and behaviour.
- I will support you to bring the past into the context of the present to see what meaning this has in your life now. In this approach there is room for acceptance of what has gone before and a chance to let go of patterns that limit the present, providing an opportunity for change.
- I will support you to find your own answers and resources so you can move forward in a way that makes sense to you and your experince of life.
- I work relationally so creating a trusting relationship with care and compassion is key to the work I do. I believe that offering a relationship of unconditional care and trust can bring transformation. Through the relationship we create together you will have space to discover new ways to meet the issues you face.
- When appropriate and always with consent I may work with Sand Tray or other creative mediums to help bypass the mind and support the therapy process.
- I offer a free first session so you can experience the way I work and see if you feel I am the right counsellor for you to work with at this time. Please email or call me to arrange this on the above details.
